Bills’ Damar Hamlin showing ‘positive readings’

Damar Hamlin’s recovery is moving in “a positive direction” two days after the Buffalo Bills safety collapsed and went into cardiac arrest.

News Agencies



Buffalo Bills safety Damar Hamlin is still in critical condition in the ICU at the University of Cincinnati Medical Center, but it appears there’s some positive news on the horizon.

Hamlin showed “signs of improvement” Tuesday and overnight into Wednesday, the Bills announced. He will remain in the ICU for now.

That update confirms an earlier report, when a friend of Hamlin’s family, Jordon Rooney, said Hamlin showed “promising readings” overnight.


Rooney, who released an official update on behalf of the Hamlin family on Tuesday, also sought to clarify some incorrect information that recently came out. Hamlin’s uncle spoke to CNN yesterday and said that Hamlin had to be resuscitated twice: once on the field and once at the hospital. But according to Rooney, via ESPN’s Coley Harvey, Hamlin’s heart stopped once on the field at Paycor Stadium, and nowhere else.

Rooney was also careful to note that Hamlin has a long way to go in his recovery.

Harvey also dropped a tidbit from a longer interview he did with Rooney. Hamlin’s father, Mario, wants all criticism of Cincinnati Bengals wide receiver Tee Higgins to stop.


Hamlin collapsed in the first quarter of Monday night’s Bills-Bengals game after taking a hit from Higgins square in the chest while trying to tackle him. He went into cardiac arrest and medical personnel had to restart his heart on the field. They also gave him CPR for almost 10 minutes before he was loaded into an ambulance and taken to the hospital.

Bills to have walkthrough, not ready to talk with media

Multiple teams adjusted their schedules Tuesday in light of Hamlin’s situation and canceled or postponed their media availability. But the Bills are dealing with a much bigger disruption in their weekly routine. According to The MMQB’s Albert Breer, the Bills didn’t get back to Buffalo until 2:30 a.m. on Tuesday, and came to the facility later in the day only to get information.


The organization is inching back toward its regular routine. It announced Wednesday that it will be holding player meetings and a walkthrough, but will not yet speak to the media.
